Those on the right who deny the constant obstruction of every Obama initiative, including bills that would benefit America, have this to explain: From Eisenhower’s administration until the end of the Bush era, which includes nine administrations, the filibuster was used 20 times. Since Obama has been in office, the filibuster has been used 72 times. Can anyone blame the Senate for adopting the so-called nuclear option, which limits the use of the filibuster? Or deny that a roadblock was put on Obama from day one?

Politics matters

Anyone bored with politics, who is uninformed about what is happening to our country, I hope won’t bother to vote in their ignorance. With the destruction of the best health-care system in the world, taking away our constitutional rights, our jobs, privacy, running our economy without a budget for five years andsinking us hopelessly in debt, financially supporting our enemies, the icing on the cake is lifting sanctions against Iran, financing them, and giving them the green light for enriching uranium. I think when “Bored with politics” wakes up he will be very surprised.

Great again

Good luck to Lawrence and best wishes. I have very fond memories of Lawrence and know that with good citizens who contribute and care it can become great again.
